Awareness-Raising Activities to spread vaccinations for the elderly

Committee:
Vaccines
Published:
We held EFPIA Vaccine Webinar with the theme, "Consideration of life course vaccination especially now with the COVID-19 pandemic”. It was agreed to start developing guidance on mutual communication between physicians and the recipients.

Recommendations

  • Japan will carry out large-scale nationwide temporary vaccinations of COVID-19 vaccines which they have never experienced before. Expectations for vaccines are very high as people are frustrated from limitation in activities for over a year. However, this situation can also cause people to overreact to side effects and effectiveness of vaccines. As such, we need to urgently provide communication guidance on vaccination to physicians.
